It's wise to ask advice before becoming a volunteer
Here are a few things to think about if you have volunteered your services.
You may be able to make a difference without realising it at first, so think about how you can contribute.
What time have you available? Some volunteer roles only require a one-off contribution.
Ask another parent, friend or relative to volunteer with you. It'll be more fun that way.
See how you like it first before offering too much of a commitment.
If you're not sure what your role is, ask for a description just so you can be sure.
Try to have some input. Ask questions and suggest some changes if you think it would improve things.
If you have any concerns, talk to someone at the club rather than worrying about it.
You might be able to go for training or gain qualifications to help you in the role.
Be careful about giving out your address or phone number. You may not want to be contacted day and night.
Don't give or lend cash or accept gifts - it can lead to compromising situations. If you do need to take money for a specific purpose, then make sure it is in a sealed envelope and labelled with details of what its purpose is.
